Kiernan Shipka, Chilling Adventures of Sabrina star, agrees and so do fans that her show needs a crossover with Riverdale.
Netflix reveals that Sabrina is coming to an end after the premiere of its fourth season. Kind of a letdown to their faithful viewers. Season 4 will drop on Netflix on December 31st.
Kiernan Shipka’s Words:
With the show concluding soon, star Kiernan Shipka suggests and hints at the possibility of a crossover between the Riverdale and Chilling Adventures of Sabrina.
The star explains why Riverdale could use a crossover appearance from a certain teenage witch. During a roundtable interview, Shipka states that the murderous town of Riverdale could use a teenage witch now more than ever.
“Honestly, I just think Riverdale could use a witch,” Shipka said. She further adds that Riverdale is going through a ton of stuff and they need some celestial whatever kind of vibes. A bit of extra power is in need, and the show needs someone who knows reincarnation, necromancy. Riverdale surely needs that in their world and, Kiernan believes that it would be a fun world if the two shows collided at some point.
Will Chilling Adventures of Sabrina And Riverdale Crossover Happen?
Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, who is the creator of both of the television series, reveals that the so-planned fifth segment of Sabrina had the possibility of featuring a witch war between the denizens of Riverdale and Greendale. That would have happened if Netflix had chosen to renew the Archie Comics adaptation.
The situation of introducing magic, witches, and Satan into the world of Riverdale would certainly be a pretty big leap. But it also wouldn’t be so far off from all the wild, cultish, murderous plotlines the show has seen thus far. The town of Riverdale has previously made a debut on Chilling Adventurers of Sabrina. An intersection of the two series would honestly make a lot of things in Riverdale make a lot more sense.
The unfortunate news is that a crossover, at this moment seems highly unlikely. Chilling Adventures of Sabrina will soon reach its end, and Riverdale’s time jump which is right around the corner could be preparing a relatively fresh start for the show.
Sky is the limit with Aguirre-Sacasa at the wheel. It seems more likely that the two will remain in touch only by loose references. Maybe some fun Easter eggs for dedicated viewers can be expected.
